Overview by IAAF    2000_olympic_stadium.jpg
The USA were favourites, but Bahamas were World Champions in 1999 with athletes who were all in Sydney. Jamaica (42.46) and Bahamas (42.58) were fastest in the heats, with the USA content to take their race in 42.92. The theme was repeated in the semi-finals as Jamaica (42.15) were fastest qualifiers and the Bahamas won the other semi-final in 42.42. Jones was rested in the preliminary rounds. Fynes took a metre from Gaines on the first leg in the final, and a good changeover for Bahamas compensated for the ground made up by Edwards on Sturrup. The US bungled its changeover to Perry from Torri Edwards, and the Bahamas’ lead doubled to 4m. Davis held that advantage, and another slick pass, compared to America’s faltering efforts meant that Ferguson had 6m advantage over Jones. The US star made up one place and almost 4m, but the Bahamas came home 2m clear of Jamaica, whose changes were better than the US, but not as good as the winners. Jamaica were anchored by Ottey, who gained her eighth Olympic medal – a record for any woman – some 20 years after her first one. In 2009 years later she would gain a ninth when her Sydney 2000 100m fourth place was at last upgraded to bronze. The US may well not have won a medal without the input of Marion Jones, but because of Jones’s doping violations (see page 208 for details) she was stripped of her medal in December 2007. In April 2008, the IOC Executive Board disqualified the rest of the US squad – and also the US 4x400m team in Sydney which won gold with the help of Jones – and asked for the return of their medals. Seven of Jones’s relay team-mates across the two relays then appealed against this decision to the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Their appeal referred to rule 25.2.2.4 of the Olympic Charter which stated that “no decision taken in the context of the Olympic Games can be challenged after a period of three years from the day of the closing ceremony of such Games.” In December 2009, the arbitrators decided that this rule did not cover the distribution of medals, but then in 2010, the CAS ultimately upheld the appeal concluding that “The Panel found that at the time of the Sydney Olympic Games there was no specific IOC or IAAF Rule in force that clearly allowed the annullment of the relay team results if one team member was found to have committed a doping offence.” So the US remain as bronze medallists despite the key role played by Marion Jones. A rule change closing this loophole was passed by the IAAF Congress in Paris 2003, and in the IAAF rule book covering 2004-2005 rule 39.2 stated that teams shall be automatically disqualified if a member commits an anti-doping violation. The appropriate rule number (rule book 2012-2013) is now 41.1.
       
Summary by Sports-reference.com      
The United States was a slight favorite, led by 100 and 200 champion Marion Jones. But the Bahamas had won the 1999 World Championship. The Bahamas had the fastest time in the first round, and Jamaica posted the best time the semi-finals. The final saw Sevatheda Fynes put the Bahamas in the lead from the outset. The US speed tried to gain on them, but poor exchanges hindered their efforts. By the anchor leg, Jones was in third, trailing the Bahamas and Jamaica, and she could not make up the deficit, Debbie Ferguson anchoring the Bahamas to the gold medal. Jamaica’s anchor runner was Merlene Ottey, who had first competed in the Olympics in 1980. In 2007, Marion Jones would admit that they she had used performance-enhancing drugs (PEDs) at the time of the 2000 Olympics, and the US team would lose its bronze medal, France moving up from fourth.

        Results        

For a period of 2 years, the Bronze medals won by the United States team were stripped due to doping by Marion Jones. On 23 November 2007, the IAAF recommended to the IOC Executive Board to disqualify the USA women's 4 × 100 m and 4 × 400 m relay teams after Marion Jones admitted to having taken performance enhancing drugs prior to the Games. On 12 December, the IOC disqualified Jones and stripped her of her relay medals but it did not disqualify the U.S. relay teams. On 10 April 2008, the IOC disqualified both U.S. relay teams and asked for Jones' teammates' medals to be returned.

On 16 July 2010, the Court of Arbitration for Sport ruled in favor of the non-disqualified American women, who had appealed the International Olympic Committee's decision to disqualify them from the Sydney Games. Nanceen Perry did not join the appeal. The court said that rules in place in 2000 did not allow entire teams to be disqualified because of doping by one athlete.

Final

The United States originally won bronze, but on 10 April 2008, following Marion Jones's admission that she had used performance enhancing drugs, the entire team was stripped of their medals. However, Jones's teammates appealed that decision by taking the case to the Court of Arbitration. On July 16 2010, CAS ruled in the athletes favor and both American women relay squads had their medals reallocated.[2]
